US grants humanitarian visa to Cuban child with leukemia for treatment in Miami

cuban boy jose camilo Meet Caturra Díaz will be able to receive adequate treatment for her leukemia in the US after she was granted a humanitarian visa on Thursday. 11-year-old Caturra will be treated at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami the new herald,

For the time being, the boy is still admitted to the Institute of Hematology in Havana, where he has received several platelet transfusions that are necessary to stabilize his body during the trip to Florida. MeetJoe will be accompanied by his father, Jesús Caturra, who has his immigration documents, but his health condition has not allowed him to board the plane for the time being.

Caturra Díaz family requested parole humanitarian aid for the child last October, but the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) resolved the case this week. With the delay, the condition of the patient kept on deteriorating. Doctors in Havana had to subject him to three very aggressive treatments, which started bleeding from the mouth and nose Meet,

“I thought it would be faster. That he would leave the hospital for the hospital from here,” lamented his mother, Judith Diaz Valenti, interviewed by the new herald, Their determination was based on the criteria of immigration lawyer Zulimari Memi-Serrano, who is the legal mediator between Caturra Díaz and the Usquis. cases like MeetThese, he believes, “must be resolved quickly to preserve the integrity and health of the child.”

“Illness boosts your immunity, that’s what worries you when it takes it all”

USCIS guaranteed resolution of the case within the normal waiting limit – between 90 and 120 days -, the lawyers point out, but in practice, this was a very delicate period for the child’s well-being and the delay was the price paid.

Guillermo D’Angulo, the doctor who took care of Caturra in Miami, was of the opinion, “The disease triggers its immunity, that’s the concern that one has.” Doctors assure that “the waiting time put the life of the child at risk.” At Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, they will discuss the current status of the child’s disease. The intention is to achieve remission in about 30 days and to have a bone marrow transplant three months later.

While father and son travel to Miami, their mother and brother will remain in Cuba. The separation, the family assures, terrifies them. Caturra was diagnosed with leukemia in 2020 and her treatment in Cuba did not yield satisfactory results, so the family decided to seek help in Miami. From Florida, Dr. D’Angulo reported that Havana did not meet the conditions for the child’s care and that they lacked the “equipment to fully exonerate him”.
